Pass The Book: My Last (But Not The End)

Just sneaking in before the very end of the month, today I'd like to bring you my last Pass The Book. I'm going to be quick, because you have heard quite enough from me lately, but, please, do join in this one last time. July's book is:


the brand new, just published Art Saves by Jenny Doh. Stories, inspiration and prompts sharing the power of art is how it's subtitled; and that works for me. It's a beautiful book, just full of gorgeous pictures and nuggets to dip into. Perfect for coffee time, or five minutes before you fall asleep.


I bet I don't need to tell you the rules by now (but you can always check the page here). Leave a comment if you'd like to be in the draw. I'll post the winner next Saturday.  But I do need to tell you that, from next month, super book-fan Melissa from Daily Life Bits and Pieces will be taking over. And I'm delighted! Do look out for her first selection in August. I'm looking forward to it already.

One last peek at Art Saves :
"Combine your efforts with the efforts of other like minded people, and you'll be able to achieve things that are greater than what any one person could accomplish alone"
- which reminds me to note: it's Storytelling Sunday next week! I know some of you are already thinking about your post. I am too. A holiday themed one, I reckon. Just need some photos...

Mid week I was thinking about STS, and realising it was fast approaching ... I am feeling a little overloaded with the stories this week but this will be a lovely opportunity to expand on one or two in reflection.

It looks like yet another fascinating book,Sian....your choices are always just right.

I have to say that is my quote for my scrapbook/spread all over the flat stash room. When my mum comes round and says ''What more rubbish'' I'll show her this quote and encourage to think of me as creative :). Looks like a fab book again Sian. Thanx for being host and I'm so glad you get time off for gr8 behaviour. What will you think of next?

Looks a very interesting book - I have been getting some good use out of my new purchases - now need to get them loaded up :0)

Karen said...

Every month I think - I've just got to have that book, but this month I've just GOT to have THAT BOOK!

Fabulous choice Sian.

It'll be strange to see someone else passing the books - it's been a great success. Will the books eventually come home to you or will they continue to travel the world?

I'll soon be a recipient of September's book, so please don't add me to the draw for this - I'll try for it later on though as it looks great!

Melissa said...

Sounds like another good book, but don't put me in the draw this time as I still have Good Mail Day.

I've already got my book picked out for August & I'm looking forward to continuing this great project!

Fiona said...

Looks like a great book, would love to join in.

Sian said...

Jemma, I'm hoping they will come back to me at the rate of one aq month. So, each book should keep on doing the rounds for a full year.

Julie Kirk said...

I'd like a chance to get my eyes on that one thanks.

As for pumokins ... at the rate ours has grown I think he'd be in with a chance for Halloween! Ours is in a greenhouse so I guess that's helped. Just please don't ask for fertility advice. We still haven't worked it out ... [for the squash I mean ... !]

Looks like a great book - please put me in the draw. By the way, "Still Missing" will be on its way to Jemma tomorrow. Thanks for hostessing PTB; I need to add our new hostess to my reader. Love your suggestion of a travel/holiday story for next weekend. I have a good idea percolating.

Looks like a book for rejuvenating weary spirits, as well as for focusing active ones: please count me in. :) You've been stellar, Sian, in your dedication to Passing The Book, and I am grateful to you for bringing so many great titles to my attention. Thank-you!

Kelli said...

very fun :) If I don't win, I'll have to definitely check the book out ;)

Cheri said...

Sian - you pick the BEST books! I really wanted last month's book, but now I really want this month's book! I love all the artsy inspiration. Thank you so much for being such a wonderful hostess over the past year. I need to finish a piece I'm working on and do a post, then "Where Women Create" will be on its way home to you!

Ginger said...

Well done Sian on picking all these wonderful books! This one looks fantastic, and I would love to have an opportunity to look more closely at it :)

furrypig said...

another amazing book choice, I wish I had a local crafty friend or 2 to share some of my stash with it would be a great afternoon all making together!

cate said...

this looks like another fantastic book that I need on my bookshelf! I'd love the chance to read it!

Scrappydiva said...

Oooh! I just saw your post.... I hope I'm not too late to put my name in the draw?? I've never taken part in Pass the Book before and I'd love to have a chance at reading this one!

Thanks
Anthea

I'd love to have a chance to be in the draw. :)

I still keep thinking about STS even though I have never remembered in time to participate. Maybe this time will be different. :D
